    It is funny how people have different luck. The 3 worst vehicles i have ever owned was a 88 toyota pickup 22r engine that had a bunch of problems and went through radiators like oil. A 1998 honda civic that had air bag light come on at 37000 miles, the tranny go at 50000 miles plus in the cold the temp would go to cold changed thermostat and radiator still no heat in the cold when idling and the 02 sensor would throw a code all the time even when replaced twice. And these are probably according to most some of the most reliable cars on the road. I also had a 2013 subaru impreza at 32000 miles was turning into a pos with loud engine noise and a horrible ride so i traded in that piece. I also take care of all my vehicles. And these are probably according to most some of the most reliable cars on the road. Every chevy i have owned has been great plus my 2016 ford escape is my favorite everyday vehicle i have ever owned. My friend had a 2009 silverado with AFM with 200000 miles that he just traded in and is still on the road racking up miles. SO it can be hit or miss on all vehicles.

    This truck is amazing. I’ve been lurking since these hit the dealerships. Love this thing! Can’t wait to go back and read all of the tips and tricks that people have posted. The Extang TriFecta that I had on my 2015 fits pretty well! It doesn’t follow the bed curve... but you’d have to be super picky and looking for something to complain about.

    The paperwork that came with my suspension as well and my suspension on my car all says re torque after 500. Also most factory bolts are torque to yield and are listed as needing to be replaced if used. Lastly A few dollars goes into a manufacturer engineering a automobile then we add aftermarket parts, I would re torque them. If you don't want to or don't have time I would take a white paint marker and mark all off the important bolts. For non believers (pronstar) read number 4 on last page under Post installation Warnings. http://4x4media.info/instructions/zon/C2622.pdf

    It’s an OEM GM part, bought right from the dealer. They should be able to look it up.

    Well I haven't done anything yet, believe it or not these numbers were much worse on 1st go around haha. My truck is selling retail/privately for around $34K - 35K (starting point)in a fairly widespread search. You're right on the new vehicle price, unfortunately in this area with this demographic, it will be tough for me to match Laura prices and I will be lucky to see 21% (I'm not financing) off MSRP.

    I could do the swap myself. I strongly considered it. I am going to super charge the 5.3 instead and not spend the money. if GM built it I could finance it. If I have to built it, it takes cash.

    Did they say anything about the drains? I see trees in your picture...GM sunroof drains are notorious for collecting sh*t...Just wondering if they cleaned them, seals aren't usually the problem.

    If nothing else, you're find a much broader selection if you go to 245/75/16 tires. My '01 half-ton Suburban came with 265/70/16, but once I started towing with it I switched to 245/75/16. Very slightly smaller diameter tire, but tons more choices in brand, especially for E-load LT tires. My '08 3/4-ton Burb came with 245/75/16 as the OEM tire.

You really don't need overly aggressive treads for the driving you describe.

    Is this the original battery? Does it get cold as in below 32 degrees? If both of these are true, get a new battery. 8 years is a good life and you can't complain about it.

    For you sierra guys complaining about the 14-15 headlights, the Silverados didn't have that problem. So trading in just for the new headlights is useless. my $.02: I think the 19's are hard to look at. If I was hellbent on upgrading I'd get an 18 and wait to see the next generation. But I don't think there are enough improvements on 18 to justify the cost over keeping my 15.

    Amsoil is great stuff. When I changed mine at 9,900 that one time, the oil itself was fine, but I had very high levels of wear metals in the oil, so Blackstone suggested changing it at 7k. I've been doing that the past couple changes, and the metal content is a little better. That's all due to this engine, and not the oil, as backed up by the analysis. I'll post a pic of the analysis from that 9,900 mile run below: Yeah you'll be fine with that, so long as the temp doesn't stay in the 20° range and you're using the truck daily for months on end. It would still work, but will be like molasses in the morning - would make the engine rattle for a few seconds at startup in those temps. If you're only there for a couple weeks, it won't hurt anything. If you did that every winter there for the entire winter, in a few years you could potentially wear some bearings out. This particular analysis was after that longer run (thought it was 9,900 - it's 9,635), but it's in the history on the page there (those 2 prior analysis were on 5w-30 - I switched to 10w-30 to try and save this engine from a short life):

    Not sure yet, the white/black combo was carefully chosen as it looks mostly factory, but with just enough color to look custom. The engineers agreed that the white/white was to "ricey". but at the end of the day you guys are the customer, and if enough people want it in white yall are getting it in white! The auxiliary gauges are custom btw. They have the matching font.

    I say it every time. Call the local GM rep. Email over your info. He will pull the dealer service invoices and it will be taken care of. Their job to smooth over the issues of all 3 parties. They have so much power it is stupid. I have seen everything from free loaners,checks,buy backs, to just work approval. That said I have seen people take a car in under warranty and very shady and unsafe "repairs" are done because the warranty was close to over or the dealer didnt think they would be paid to fix it.

    They have updated it to "WAMS will be COMPLETELY closed until 11/19". So I think your hopes were correct.

    This long term 0% loan is kind of weird. I don't really want to still be paying for my truck beyond the 5 year mark. Paying it off early seems like it would be nice. But, paying it off early does not seem to make good economic sense, assuming I'd continue ownership beyond the length of the loan. If I had money available for extra payments, I would be better off in the long run putting the money towards my mortgage, or investing it anywhere that yields interest.

    What he said. The curt hardness was definitely the way to go. I spliced into the lower reverse lights instead just so they go on with the 3 way switch. I love the thing and love the amber sequential look to it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I don't know why yours is doing that, mine works much better. If its cold out (30's) I leave temp set to 70 on AUTO. fan blows very little until engine is warm, then it cranks up until reaching desired temp inside, then the fan slows way down again. I'm happy with it as my first vehicle with the "auto" thermostat. It also reduces the fan if you get a phone call on bluetooth. its nice for being able to hear, but sometimes i don't want to turn the fan down. Side note: if you remote start, I think it just blows on max fan speed, and does not adjust until you put the key in.

    Hi Krunch, Yes, I got this all squared away. What I did with my truck is that I researched accessing the radio and was able to get direction to open up the trim around the center display panel... after some nervousness because, after all, this was a brand new truck! I found that when I removed the display panel, I could easily access the wire to the "shark fin". I bought a simple antenna wire extension to fit both the back of my Onyx radio and to connect to the shark fin behind the display panel. Not sure where I bought it, but it was an "internet search" find... maybe something to do with "XM radio antenna extension"... probably 20 inches long... male/female wire. It is a very simple job to snake the wire from behind the display panel to the accessory plug area below. Next, I wanted to make my accessory plug (bottom center dash) to power on only with key. (Mine was live all the time... not what I wanted) I tapped the fuse box by driver's door, ran a power wire under the dash over to the accessory outlet area. I then bought one of those XM radio "plug in" power mounts to plug into the accessory outlet. Once I mounted my Onyx radio to the plug in mount and plugged in the antenna pigtail (from the shark fin) to the back of the Onyx radio... turn on the ignition and IT WORKS! It has been over a year now with absolutely no issue. I was initially concerned that the plug-in mount might be flimsy (because the accessory outlet really is not built to support any real weight)... but no issues so far! I have one subscription to Sirius XM for my Onyx portable radio... that I move from my Silverado... to my Volvo (daily driver)... to my Corvette... back and forth... simple. I hope this helps. DJ

    I drove like a turtle before my gears. I don’t speed or drive like an ass. When I put my gears in it was for an all around longevity upgrade (less strain on drivetrain, trans, etc..), gas mileage and improved responsiveness in city driving. After my gears, well, sometimes it’s just fun to be pushed back in my seat a little and know the power is there if I need it. Regarding your wife driving it, here’s a little story. When I got my Vette, the first person to drive it other than me was a friend’s wife. I went to his house to let him drive it and he insisted on her driving it first. I didn’t really understand why he was so insistent until we started driving. She chirped the wheels though third and to this day can shift faster than anyone I know. He said he never knew until one day he had a couple too many pops when they went out so she drove his cobra home while he rode shotgun. I think after that ride might be when he realized he was gonna marry her[emoji23]. If the eggs are broken when your wife gets home from the grocery store, well, she might have a little lead foot you never knew about.

    Tell the dealer you want this TSB performed: #17-NA-269 - Rear Camera Screen Bright At Night - (Sep 13, 2017) It will make a huge difference. I can see it off my right side mirror now.

    Hey listen if you do not want to inform anyone of anything that is perfectly fine, that is your business, I do not care one way or the other. However do not sit here and go after me you comment all you want, but back off of me. I am sure there are some on here that are smart enough to read between the lines that has been posted, but I can assure you it darn sure is not you or you would not be continuing to run your mouth.

    I do not disagree the car manufacturers are all flawed for not installing a catch can or similar device that works like the catch can on their engines. As far as you being mature enough to also know that broadcasting it to the OEM or dealership is about as stupid as it gets, well I hate to break it to you, but you are not as smart as you think you are and apparently you do not understand things or subtle hints unless it is spelled out with construction paper and crayons. I have the Elite EX-2 catch can arriving at my home today and I am installing it the very next evening I have a break from work on my truck with no worries about warranty.
